Though Vincero is known mostly for its dress watches, with its latest release the brand has shown its versatility. The Vincero Altitude is a striking pilot watch, equipped with a surgical-grade stainless steel case and scratch-resistant sapphire-coated glass. These smart features ensure that the watch can take a beating — and look good doing it. The watch comes with an ultra-durable Cordura nylon band, but is interchangeable so you can dress it up with a different strap. Vincero makes each of its watches in small-batches ensuring that each is rugged enough to bring on your bumpiest exploits.

Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2 Running Shoes
Save $72: Thirty-six years. It seems impossible, but that’s how long the Pegasus name has been part of Nike’s running shoe offerings. And based on the latest iterations, this beloved series isn’t going away anytime soon. Case in point: the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2s, which are loaded with elements that make runners smile.
Chief among those qualities are a light and breathable lofted mesh and synthetic upper, an ultralight, energy-returning Nike ZoomX midsole and a burly rubber outsole that provides traction on all sorts of surfaces. We rarely see these shoes on sale, but right now JackRabbit is offering a couple colorways (including the Electric Green shown above) at 40 percent off in select sizes. Pounce now and you’ll be running happy all fall long. — Steve Mazzucchi
